From 1 to 3 May, the “9th Beach Polo Masters 2015” took place on Timmendorf Beach. The Engel & Völkers + Land Rover Polo School was one of the sponsors of the tournament, presenting itself together with its car/trailer combination and promotional horse at the event. It also put forward one of the six polo teams. On the team for Engel & Völkers was, amongst others, Christian Philipp Völkers, Managing Director of E&V Development GmbH. There were around 700 guests in the VIP area. The organisers counted a total of some 34,000 spectators over the three tournament days. Susanne Krohn, Project Manager of the Engel & Völkers + Land Rover Polo School, reports: “Alongside Miami Beach and Dubai, the beach polo tournament on Timmendorf Beach is one of the absolute highlights of the beach polo season. So we simply couldn’t miss it.”
One week beforehand, the popular equestrian event “Horses & Dreams” took place from 22 to 26 April in Hagen in the Teutoburg Forest in Lower Saxony, Germany. This year’s guest country was Australia. World-class riders from 30 nations competed in show-jumping and dressage disciplines, attracting some 65,000 spectators to the event. There were 150 national and international exhibitors representing homes, gardens and of course equestrian sports at the event – including the Engel & Völkers + Land Rover Polo School. Visitors included World Cup champion goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, former tennis star Michael Stich and German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen. The Polo School was strengthened in numbers at this event by the presence of E&V Osnabrück. Managing Partner Marc Lasarz presented properties together with team members in a tent set up directly alongside the car/trailer combination and promotional horse. He held a great many talks with potential clients whilst their children tried out the wooden polo horse.
The car/trailer combination and promotional horse of the Engel & Völkers + Land Rover Polo School consists of a branded Land Rover Discovery vehicle and a Böckmann horsebox trailer. In addition, E&V merchandising article and GG magazine were also on display, along with info material about the Polo School. A special highlight was the wooden polo horse inviting interested spectators to practice shooting goals at a net. “Many visitors took us up on this chance. They very soon realised however that it is not all that easy hitting this small ball, although neither the horse nor the ball were actually moving”, said Susanne Krohn.
